Self-Love

Here’s the Thing… Ever since I began college back in 2013, people have always been asking me, “So what’s next?” I suppose it is a valid question, since the four years of college can be some of the most transformative, but I just gotta be honest: I was tired of always trying to come up with answers that I thought…

Becoming a Champion

Becoming a champion

Here’s the Thing… About a month ago I was hanging out with my little sister before her cheer practice. Over the course of the morning, she had developed a stomach ache and desperately did not want to go to practice. A little background info: her and her cheer squad had qualified to go to the Jamz National Championship in Las…

What the Heck am I Doing?!

What the heck am I doing?!

Here’s the Thing… I have always known that working in an office wasn’t for me, however, I’ve never really acted upon that intuition until quite recently. As you probably know, one of my goals for the year is to transition into working remotely. Since it is something I am very passionate and serious about, I have naturally been talking about…

“It’s Too Soon for That”

It's too soon for that

It wasn’t anything drastic, just some adjustments that I felt would be more professional and would better reflect the company. My co-worker objected with the reasoning that since we were not yet at the level where we…

In this post, I am sharing a few quotes that I feel accurately describe where my life currently is, as well as a few that point to where I am headed. “Quality over quantity.” This literally applies to…

Purposeful Progress: Personal Goals

Purposeful Progress: Personal Goals

Here’s the Thing… Up to this point, all the goals I have been aiming for in 2018 have been pretty big, lifestyle change goals. However, I think it is also important to have smaller, more practical goals too. Maybe it’s just me, but if I don’t write things down and have an action plan, they will never get done. So,…

In Pursuit of my Dreams

In Pursuit of my dreams

Here’s the Thing… I have had dreams before, but I have very rarely put actions behind those dreams to make them goals and then, hopefully, one day, reality. Some examples include becoming a marine biologist, becoming a vet tech or becoming an admissions counselor at Biola. Those were all big, important dreams to me, but when it came time to…

The Benefits of Speaking Out

The benefits of speaking out

Here’s the Thing… A few months ago I started the job I currently have now. The first couple weeks were a little dull, as I was still just getting into the swing of things. However, once I started diving more into the actual work, things got a little more complicated. There was a co-worker I would often butt heads with because…

Purposeful Progress: Work Goals

Here’s the Thing… I am very grateful for my job and the things I have learned here, but it is not where I want to stay for the rest of my life. Therefore, I decided to make my work goals reflect an attitude of gratitude for where I am at, but also ambitiously focused on where I am headed. Continue…
